The journey began when a Royal Marine and an investigative journalist saw an opportunity in the market for a leading and trusted brand of private investigators.
They decided to join ‘forces’ and combine their expertise to create a brand that could be respected for their quality of work and trusted for their professional integrity.
They setup the company and from a small bedroom office they took the first step on the journey to creating a brand that would offer value and transparency to all its customers.
Knowing trust was a big issue with customers they ensured every customer knew exactly what the team was doing and felt comfortable knowing exactly what their money was being spent on.
After only a few short years they had outgrown the small home office, moved into some commercial space and built a network of reliable investigators that adhered to the same meticulous standards they expected from themselves.
In 2012 the marine had an opportunity to pursue a life long ambition and left the company to join a private security team offering close protection services to a range of high profile international targets and high value assets.
Although the team were sad to see him leave they knew business would continue and as the great Alexander Graham Bell once said, “When one door closes, another opens”
In 2014 a university graduate with industry experience saw an opportunity and was keen to invest in the blossoming business, treasuring the same business values they set about expanding into new markets.
The focus was shifted from matrimonial investigations into a more corporate dominated market that primarily aimed to protect businesses against fraud, theft and employee misconduct while retaining the business intelligence required to maintain a competitive advantage.
As the company’s experience working on corporate investigations grew, so did the list of happy clients. Over the past 12 months they had successfully conducted investigations for some large profile clients including Birmingham City Council and The Department For Work And Pensions (DWP).
The principal director decided they were ready and joined The Association of British investigators, a group widely regarded as the most respected association in the industry.
Working in the corporate market led to the company establishing relationships with businesses in new sectors, the company was now supporting a nationwide group of solicitors who rely on them to gain crucial evidential footage, trace individuals and serve legal documents.
It wasn’t only the legal sector where business was blossoming though, through a string of successful employee investigations the company had now found themselves partnering with a number of HR departments and company directors protecting firms against absenteeism and fraudulent injury claims.
2020 brought new and unpredictable challenges to businesses and individuals alike. As COVID-19 sent shockwaves around the globe, we found we had to adapt.
At Reveal, we sat down and restructured the office and our working hours to ensure a safe and manageable working environment for our staff and clients.
Because we rarely come into direct contact with any of our subjects, there has been little difference to our operations, other than the addition of necessary PPE and staff training.
Amid national negativity, we wanted to remain positive. In order to boost morale, we welcomed a new member to the team: Lenny the Office Dog!
This year also sees RevealPI begin a new chapter, forging strategic partnerships to improve our services.
We have partnered with Centric HR, a Human Resources Outsourcing company, to provide expert HR advice on our corporate investigations. This relationship will support our team with professional perspectives on investigative approaches and limitations.
As part of our efforts to increase the support we can offer clients, we have fostered a new relationship with the non-profit health and wellbeing organisation, BHSF. Their mental health support offering now extends to our clients, free of charge, no matter what they’re going through.
